-u.s. demonstrators marched on the headquarters of the main islamist militia group in benghazi, libya today. they pulled down the militia flag there and torched a vehicle holding pro u.s. signs. now to a story that critics say is already a foreign policy scandal. we're getting a clearer picture of what really happened on september 11, at the u.s. mission in benghazi. the politics of what some see as a coverup. we have fox team coverage tonight. chief washington correspondent james rosen has the latest time line. we begin with ed henry on the continuing spin psychofrom the obama administration. good evening. >> good evening. new details emerge in the story keeps changing. republicans are stepping up the attack on the president's credibilit. >> reporter: another day, another version of what went down in libya two weeks ago. >> what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. >> the confusion started september 12 in a president obama rose gar dan remarks. >> no act of terrorism will shake the great nation. >> despite the reference to terrorism, top officials spent the next week insisting it
believe to be a terrorist act, against our consulate in benghazi on the 11th anniversary of the attacks of september 11. these attacks do many things, but they remind us i think first of the bravery and commitment of government officials who serve in countries around the world, supporting the struggles of people in those countries, to live free. and by doing so work to improve our own national security. the attack in libya also reminds us that even though the core of al qaeda has been seriously weakened, we still face threats from an evolving and fractious set of terrorist groups and individuals united by a common ideology which is that of haven't -- violent islamist extremism. i'll have some questions to ask the three of you about the nature of the terrorist threat today and specifically with regard to the reaction to this film whether you think it has raised the threat level against any places or institutions or individuals here in the united states. reporting to us on the terrorist threat to the homeland today, i also hope you'll address other concerns such as the effort to counter h
in benghazi over the past couple months. we've been hearing in our time on the ground here, at least to some degree, the militants, militia very much in charge in benghazi. gregg? gregg: we're hearing there is a protest and counter protest in libya. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: interesting stuff. protests planned in benghazi a big change from others we're seeing around the world in favor of the u.s. or at least honoring the late u.s. ambassador and other americans. but the broader message from the citizens there that the government based here in tripoli needs to do more to crack down on militant groups in benghazi. the problem is, another protest, gregg, is planned at the same place, at the same time by one of those militant groups. an outfit of ansar al-sharia suspected having links to the killing. they said they are innocent. they will be saying that today, maybe in a forceful day. we'll be monitoring it all. back to you. gregg: greg palkot in tripoli. greg, thanks. martha: the white house is doing a complete reversal on the characterization of the attack in libya. the adm
weren't planned in benghazi when there was smuch it was orchestrated al qaeda related attack. that will come later in rallies in ohio and the campaign trail. today he will announce he is planning a major foreign policy speech in next couple weeks. details on that forthcoming. which illustrates on romney and paul ryan's campaign which was thought focused on the jobs and economy has been forced into a broadened portfolio to include foreign policy and international affairs. it turned out to be fortuitous. there was a lot of speculation that mitt romney's relative inexperience one-term governor of massachusetts up against a commander-in-chief that claimed to kill bin laden would be a real liability. we've seen in recent weeks mr. romney has been able to get on offense. he was criticized for his early statements suggesting that the cairo embassy remarks attacks on benghazi were inappropriate. when you look at the subsequent list of alleged gaffs, misstatements and inappropriate rhetoric the president has been accused of even suggesting egypt isn't an ally made it possible for mr.
from both sides of the aisle. attack in benghazi that left four americans dead, including chris stevens, ambassador to libya. molly henneberg is live in washington. >> molly: the white house and state department are defending ambassador susan rice. a spokesman for barack obama says she has done extraordinary work for the american people. also democratic senator john kerry called rice, quote a remarkable public servant and state department put out a statement defending rice's comments to those sunday shows. the statement said, quote, at every turn, ambassador rice said she was providing the best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time. based on what was provided to ambassador rice and other senator senior intelligence committee but they knew one day of the assault that it was a coordinated terror attack likely tied to al-qaeda. congressman king wants to know why ambassador rice went on tv five days after the attack and said otherwise. >> the entire administration, miss informed the world and she was our representative to the world explaining what happened.
highlights later. most people are saying it was a week since the benghazi attacks and amazing how the administration has been off message despite the evidence on the ground that it was a preplanned organized terrorist attack and dare i say al-qaida . now the administration seems to have seen the light and starting to realize that the indication are that this was indeed a terrorist attack. >> gretchen: it is interesting. even though it appears they came full circle. the spokesperson for the president had a different than the president within a couple of hours. let's see what jay carny said aboard air force one. it is a reporter gaggle and hard it here. here is the quote. i think it is self evident what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. our embassy was attacked and the result of four deaths of american officials. again, that is self evident. that is not what jay carny said a few days ago and susan rice ambassador to the united nations said on the talk shows on sunday. what changed the opinion in the public where they felt compelled to change the story is when matt olsen t
is in benghazi. >> reporter: this is the first thing fahud says he saw and filmed at the consulate compound. the cafeteria building up in flames. it was shortly before midnight september 11th. the smoke so thick the compound's main house is barely visible. and then this. after breaking through window men shout they found a body. suddenly one of them cries out, he's alive, he's alive. the crowd cheers. god is great. rushing for a car, they realize it's a foreigner. i was filming the video and i thought it was an american, fahed recalls, but i thought it was a driver or security guy. i never thought it was the ambassador. it's clear from the rest of the video that the man they pulled out was ambassador christopher stevens. fahed says he was alive but barely. he had a pulse and his eyes were moving, fahed says. his mouth was black from all the smoke. ten minutes later rushed through the benghazi streets in a civilian's car, the ambassador arrived at the hospital. but it was too late. this doctor tells us he got a code blue call. patient arrested. needs resuscitation. he too did not realize it
in benghazi. and it wasn't always clear that this was a terrorist atank. >> this was an event, obviously, a complex event, we are only talking a matter of weeks here. so it's information was... arrived at, and determinations were made. that was shared with the american people. the focus needs to be how do we make sure that our facilities and ambassadors and personnel are secure, going forward? >> obama campaign adviser david axelrod said, we don't need a president who shoots first and aims later. >> steve centanni, strong words on the show this is morning. >> reporter: you bet. >> eric: how will the handling of the attack effect the race for the white house? 43% of likely voters disapprove of the president's handling of the situation so far and 39% approve. will this put new focus on the foreign policy of the administration. >> brad and joe, good to see you here. >> good to be with you, eric. >> eric: brad, how do you think this will play into the campaign? >> i think, eric, it gets stranger and stranger each day. lives are being exposed. coverups are being exposed and frankly, it's clea
the search for whoever attacked the u.s. consulate in benghazi. four americans were killed as you know in tuesday's attack including the u.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens. investigators say if the violence was carried out by a specific group or if it was planned they can't say yet, that's why they are investigating. according to reports out oof libya, four people have already been arrested for these attacks. meanwhile, it was a heart breaking tribute for those four americans who lost their lives in the libyan attacks. >> we welcome home for the final time ambassador chris stevens. mr. sean smith, mr. glen doherty and mr. tyrone woods. >> president obama took part in the transfer of remains ceremony at andrews air force base yesterday along with vice president biden and secretary of state hillary clinton. he spoke of the ultimate sacrifice made for our country. >> they had a mission. and they believed in it. they knew the danger and they accepted it. they didn't simply embrace the american ideal. they lived it. >> the president also vowed to bring those responsible to justice. and
. chris went to benghazi in the early days of the libyan revolution, arriving on a cargo ship. as america's representative, he helped the libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for the future in which the rights of all libyans would be respected. and after the revolution, he supported the birth of a new democracy, as libyans held elections, and built new institutions, and began to move forward after decades of dictatorship. chris stevens loved his work. he took pride in the country he served, and he saw dignity in the people that he met. and two weeks ago, he traveled to benghazi to review plans to establish a new cultural center and modernize a hospital. that's when america's compound came under attack. along with three of his colleagues, chris was killed in the city that he helped to save. he was 52 years old. i tell you this story because chris stevens embodied the best of america. like his fellow foreign service officers, he built bridges across oceans and cultures, and was deeply invested in the international cooperation that th

today in benghazi, libya. the reports are that as many as 30,000 libyans took to the streets in benghazi, the city where ambassador chris stevens and three of his colleagues were tragically murdered ten days ago ago. these demonstrators marched peacefully to the gates of the compound of ansar al sharia. the militia that was responsible for the attack that killed ambassador stevens and his colleagues. the demonstrators conducted themselves peacefully. they carried signs according to media reports that read, "the ambassador was libya's friend. no, no to militias." and when these brave libyans arrived at the gates of the compound, they told the militia that they and their violent extremist agenda are not welcome in the new libya. do we want to send the message tonight as the people of libya told the militants no, that we will then tell the people of libya, we don't want to have anything to do with you we won't assist you we won't give you what you need to establish a democratic and free society? because of what happened in benghazi today somewhere chris stevens is smiling. he's smiling bec
of what the security was in the consulate in benghazi. whether or not it was accurate. and catherine herridge has published an article in foxnews.com where she outlined all of the attacks leading up to tuesday at that should have been red flags and meant we were beefing up our security on september 11th. >> as a panoply of attacks, june 6th an ied thrown at the perimeter of the consulate in benghazi. on the 11th the british motorcade came under attack by an rpg. on the 18th, attacked and burned the flag and on the 6, even the red cross building was struck. and building toward crescendo which led to the death of the ambassador. and this attack that ended in the death of four americans were repelled by 15 minutes none of who apparently killed. so an armed force comes to the consulate and none of the guards were killed, either means they're in ka hoots or they fled. >> alisyn: why weren't we having warning signs? it was woefully inaccurate and far below the levels you usually see at the embassies. there weren't marines, apparently four video cameras and those were supposed to be working
is really answering the question about what happened that day in benghazi. the fact that we have chris stevens murdered, he was assassinated that day. and i think that that truly concerns me. and so to mitt romney, maybe it's time that you buy some airtime. take some of that money. cool around the mainstream media, by some airtime, addressed the nation. somebody needs to put us at ease. certainly, it's not the president of the united states, so it's time for mitt romney to have a game changer and step up to the plate and become the president of the united states, if not by election, do it by fiat. megyn: after the tragedy in 1983, it gives you a real sense of his ability to sort of try to stick up for our principles. >> we americans seek peaceful avenues before resorting to the use of force. and we did. we tried i diplomacy of the condemnation, and economic sanctions, and demonstrations of military force. none succeeded. despite our repeated warnings, qadhafi continued his reckless policy of intimidation, his relentless pursuit of terror. we counted on america. he counted on us to be p
when he denounced the violence on either venue. >> the at talks in attacks in benghazi were no doubt that it was a terror attack. >> are no doubt that the kinds of weapons that were used, the ongoing assault, that it wasn't just a mob action. what is clear is that around the world, there is still a lot of threats out there. megyn: coming up, a man that suggests the presence messaging may actually be making us look weak to the rest of the world. just ahead, lieutenant ralph peters joins us on what the president said this morning. just minutes ago. while the president decides not to describe the events in libya during a terrorist attack, his presidential challenger took a very different route. it appears that the mobile initiative was developed this morning. >> a lot of americans are troubled by developments in the middle east. syria has witnessed a killing of tens of thousands of people. and ambassador was assassinated. iran is moving towards nuclear weapons capability. we are at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. megyn: governor romney went on to describe what he called
for glen doherty, the 42-year-old former seal killed in those attacks at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. he was part of the private security force hired to protect our diplomats overseas. governor duval patrick attended the weak yesterday for this american hero who died trying to protect those who weren't able to protect themselves. once again, glen doherty is being laid to rest today. this is in winchester, massachusetts. hundreds of mourners already in place. flags line his family's neighborhood we're told and placed along the funeral route. glen doherty laid to rest today. >>> turning to politics, brand new polls to tell you about in the race to to the white house. they run the gamut from the economy to battle for the swing states but they all seem to point to one thing. we'll tell you more about that coming up. jenna: also, jon, christmas may be months away but never too early, is it? jon: never. jenna: to talk about the must-have toys for the holiday season. we'll give you the list next jon: fox news is your election headquarters and a slew of new polls in the race for the white house
the streets of benghazi, 20,000 killed in syria. you've got israel, our closest ally in the middle east in open, basically verbal warfare between their leader and our leader. you can go around the entire region. it's mass chaos. troops getting gunned down by supposed allies every day in afghanistan. these aren't bumps in the road. this is an absolute mess. paul ryan's right, this does have the feel of tehran 1979. i'm not saying it's going to go that way, but you remember 1979 and the chaos that ensued. this isn't it. but this isn't a bump in the road. >> this is not 1979. >> so it's not -- paul ryan's not right. >> first of all, how do you know it's not 1979? >> you said it wasn't, and you said it wasn't. >> i said it probably isn't. if i'm president of the united states i don't do what jimmy carter says and call iran stability. the students were racing towards our -- >> isn't the larger issue rather than extracting what the president says during an interview and what the republican candidate's view on what he said, isn't the larger issue that both of these candidates have dismissed ab
what happened in benghazi, libya was a terrorist attack and pledged to bring those who murdered ambassador chris stevens and the three others to justice. the secretary of state saying what happened in libya was a terrorist attack and will not rest until we've tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four americans. we'll have much more on the secretary of state as well as republicans who are not satisfied with the investigation thus far from the administration and from the state department. at least 15 people are dead in pakistan as a new wave of protests over the anti-islam film "innocence of muslim" turned violent. thousands of muslims protested in at least half a dozen countries. nbc is live in kabul, afghanistan. many thought we would see protests over the french cartoon released, but these are still again over this movie or film made in the united states. >> reporter: hi there, tamron. the protests were actually about both. the majority was pointed at that film. not enough information has gone out to many countries about those cartoons published in fr
the deadly attack in benghazi as terrorism, although the president stopped short of that yesterday. >> what we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they could also directly harm u.s. interests. >> among others, senator john mccain has been very critical of the u.s. investigation into this attack. >> i'm stunned that they thought it was some kind of spontaneous demonstration. it shows the level of their, the abysmal level of their knowledge about fine nigite levels of tert attacks. >> i'm joined by an nbc news terrorist investigators. wham you're seeing and hearing, was this a terror attack? >> look, it's terrorism whether it's plans or spontaneous. you go into a foreign embassy and kill a u.s. ambassador, that's terrorism. that's what you see coming out of the obama administration. they're a lot more cautious saying this was a planned event and the i think politicians across the spectrum including senator mccain need to be very careful about that. there hasn't really been a lot of public evidence
of the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. libya attack was organized, u.s. says. this is in this morning's "wall street journal." host: the story is also being covered in the "new york times." the headline, "shifting reports on libya killings may cost obama." host: back to the zpones our discussion regarding one party versus divided government. our next call is from anton in indiana on our line for democrats. anton, you're on the "washington journal." caller: well, thank you for taking my call. i enjoy your show. i watch you every weekend. host: well, i appreciate you watching. now, your thoughts on one party or a divided government, which are you in favor of? caller: well, i believe in divided government, but i don't believe in obstruction of the process. and i would like to remind all of your viewers about the grover norquist pledge that all of the republicans seemed to sign, and it kind of backs them in a corner not to compromise with the democrats. i would also like to remind everyone that mitt romney has also signed this pledge to grover norquist. can you im
other americans. a crowd attacked the base of an islamic militia in benghazi in support of the u.s., they were angry about the murder of the four americans. in fact the protesters drove the militia out of the city. joining me now is general jack jacobs, it's good to have you here. as we talk about these protesters driving out this militia group and we can see the anger that they are now organizing as a country against these people that killed our four americans, this militia was a militia that we were originally these militia were working with the ouster of gadhafi, correct? >> yes, revolutions are really messy things. it was more than just a protest. as you said they drove these guys out. and the crowds actually burned down several headquarters of several different militant groups. ostensibly these were spontaneous reactions to the death of ambassador stephens. we have to remember that there's a contest for dominance in this area of libya. one way to get rid of the guys who are opposed to you, make your life a little bit difficult if they gain a foothold is to drive them out. th
. we know there was a demonstration at the consulate in benghazi. ambassador stevens was there for the day. there may of been an organized terrorist attack. the state department is investigating on this. i like to say i was a member of the american foreign service for many years. this was a terribly tragic day for the american foreign service. we lost four outstanding foreign servants. the state department has not lost some into a terrorist attacks since 1979. this is a dangerous business in the most dangerous parts of the world. boy, our men and women deserve our support and our thanks serving our country overseas. on the second question, pertaining to governor romney, he just needs to present a more compelling vision of what he wants to do with foreign policy for the united states. he has talked a lot about military modernization and about maintaining the strength of our air force. i think he is right about that. president obama has a modern view of how it wants to use the military. he decided he would take us out of iraq and he would begin to draw down in afghanist
, governor. >> governor kaine, turning to libya, there's reports suggesting the u.s. consulate in benghazi nay not have had security despite the warnings of the heightened risks. do you think the obama situation could have handled better before or after the attack? >> i don't know the details. we have to study it. i'm sure the answer to the question is yes. when something goes wrong, there's always something you could have done better. whiffs governor, but -- when i was governor, by darkest actually was april 2007, a shooting in virginia tech, the worst crime in the history of the state. i landed in japan on a trade mission, and i got back on, flew back, and i dealt with grieving family members in the community, and what i said from day one is we're going to put in place a panel of people with a broad expertise with no connection to virginia tech, and we'll have them turn it upside down to determine everything that could have been done different to minimize the chance that anything like that happens again. we can't prevent it, but we can minimize that chance. we found a lot of things that
't in benghazi. the day before chris stevens was. but, again, hindsight is wonderful. thank you for the question on reconciliation. again, i touched on it, but i was getting the evil stare from ashley and jessica. i mean, it was just stereo. yeah, there does have to be a political settlement, but what it can't be if it's going to be durable in the afghan context is a settlement between the u.s. and the taliban. the taliban will use that to delegitimize an afghan government, you know? our deal wasn't with these puppets, our deal was with the puppetmasters. and it will actually, i think, lessen the prospects for a stable outcome. i think what we have to do as we were doing during my time and i know we're doing now is an intense, quiet set of discussions with the afghan government, you know? okay, who's, who's navy vulnerable, how can we work this, who can we talk to, who can do what? this is a very important topic for a serious discussion trilaterally, as you point out. pakistanis play a major role here, and as they have now learned, a lot of those guys they have been giving safe harbor to happen
